If you’ve ever wondered how Pharrell’s skin stays so flawless, you’ve just received your answer. The musician announced he was dropping a skincare line a few days ago, following in the footsteps of celebs like Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and Alicia Keys.
Officially called Humanrace, the brand is born from the musician’s long-standing love for skincare. Three products—a cleanser, exfoliant, and moisturiser—have been announced, and their development was allegedly consulted by Pharrell’s own dermatologist, Elena Jones. Packaged in delightfully sustainable forest-green bottles, they are designed to fulfill the basic requirements of skincare—prepare, repair, and protect.
The line is due to drop on 25 November. Stay tuned.

FKA Twigs takes us backstage with her MAGDALENE tour makeup tutorial
The celebrated musician has more than just a innate command of music—she’s also has an incredible instinct for fashion and beauty which has allowed her to cultivate her super identifiable look. Celebrating the first anniversary of her sophomore album MAGDALENE, she took to Instagram to share a little behind-the-scenes look at her tour makeup from last year (pre-pandemic).
Makeup artist Daniel Sallstrom is the brain behind the creation of the look. “We wanted to do something that was big, bold, and dramatic, but would work with all nine costume changes,” he says. “There are a lot of classical stage tricks with this makeup: The white in between the black lines make her eyes look so much bigger, the red cut crease that extends all the way back almost to her hairline, and the red Swarovski crystals to reflect the light.“
On the look, Twigs explained: “On the second tour I had to do my own makeup, and coming from underground cabaret scenes in London I really loved this [look]. The smooth lines, the elongated features, sticking a thousand Swarovski crystals on my face—the makeup from The Red Shoes (1948) was the inspiration for Magdalene.”
In Sallstrom’s words, the look is a classic ballerina look with heavy ‘Siouxsie and the Banshees’ post-punk influences. We’ll take three, please and thank you.

Halsey turns her buzzcut into a psychedelic wonder
The singer shared a snap of her über cool makeover on Instagram, flaunting the literal work of art that has been painted into her edgy buzzcut. With a vibrant palette of slime green, vivid yellow, and sky blue, it sure is a head turner.
We also love the colour co-ord she has going on her eyelids—the glittery green wash really ties the whole look together while the pinky-peach lip makes it wearable for every day. Just for kicks, here’s her styling the buzz with a more Euphoria-inspired eye look.
